My two friends and myself had an excellent lunch during a very busy time for this restaurant. It was so busy but the staff were very efficient and friendly. Our view from our table was spectacular. We were so impressed that we went back for their sundae special for afternoon tea.

Very lovely park that gives breathtaking views of surrounding area. Looked to be very popular by locals and visitors. There are several walking tracks from very easy and short to long walks requiring greater levels of fitness. I was there in school holidays and very busy. A nice looking restaurant/coffee shop is there with gorgeous views. I did not eat... More

Hi Murray W, Thank you for visiting and dining with us! We are glad that you loved the food. However, our menu offers a mixed price range of meals from $14.00 through to $35 for a steak and as such cannot be considered expensive. Our steak is cheaper than most of our competitors for a similar quality. We hope to... More

We dined here for lunch. We had barramundi & chips and slow cooked pork belly. Pork belly was delicious, fish and chips ok without being wow. Would dine again but would choose something different.

Of course you should visit. This is one of the most iconic spots that you should visit this spot. Great views of the valley below. The cafe has sandwiches. They are fine, though overpriced for what you get. You can stop somewhere else for another snack.

Beautiful view, on and off the plate. Food was great, very generous portions with great service. Only nitpick was coffee came out in a paper cup, kind of let down the atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Thank Huddo17
